Freo was once a bit like an unpolished diamond: a little rough around the edges but incredibly valuable and now, a highly sought after location. Hear classic Aussie tales of jailbreakers, bushrangers, convicts, and rogues on this Fremantle tour hot with history, heroes, and high drama.

And you thought Western Australia was no where near as appealing as the east coast! Well this Fremantle tour in Perth might make you think again...

Starting at the Fremantle Town Hall, this Fremantle walking tour is no boring history lesson, but rather takes a non-traditional route through Freo, discovering the factual, anecdotal, and downright fascinating, all as you wander Freo's vibrant cappuccino strip.

This Perth tour winds its way through Fremantle, which is renowned for its well-preserved architectural heritage, including colonial buildings and one of the most notorious prisons in the British Empire, Fremantle Prison. The locals here were as hard as nails; salty sea dogs rubbed shoulders with newly-arrived immigrants to create a city full of characters '€“ some of whose stories you'€™ll be amazed to hear from your local guide!

Once home to whaling stations and mass immigration, Freo is now a charming little city which is celebrated for its variety of restaurants and multicultural history. On this Fremantle tour in Perth, you'll hear of so many local stories, such as Irish prisoners escaping, comical British bushrangers, Freo's impact as a port during World War II, and the shameful expulsion of aboriginals to Rottnest Island. There is no better way to explore Freo than with a local guide to tell you all its fascinating stories, of which there are many, if you hadn't guessed!

“I did a Convicts and Colonials Tour in Fremantle, WA with Bernie. Only one in group. She was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I had lots of opportunities to take photos. Great way to see things that the bus tours don't show you. I finished up the tour with some lovely fish and chips overlooking the harbour.”
